Rihanna For Vogue US April 2011

Rihanna channels her inner Ariel from The Little Mermaid on cover of the April 2011 edition of American Vogue.

The singer was so excited about her cover, she tweeted it straight after the shoot.

As Vogue covers are features are supposed to be confidential, I wasn’t surprised to see her tweet taken down a few hours later.

I can see why she was so excited. She got to wear a stunning embroidered Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 dress on the cover which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The editors at Vogue didn’t try to portray Rihanna as anyone other than herself. She gives us sexy rock chic bad-ass attitude plus a few gentle shots of her skipping down the beach wearing Lanvin.

Rihanna wears a red hot Hervé Léger by Max Azria cutout swimsuit with Alexander Wang open-toe booties; a Chloé one-shoulder mesh dress and a Donna Karan midnight-blue bodysuit in the rest of her beautiful editorial.

The April issue is called the “Shape Issue”, so Rihanna talks about loving her figure and hating the gym. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On cutting her hair and dying it black back in 2007: “When I cut my hair, the whole sound changed, my style changed.”Read More…

Leighton Meester For L’Officiel Lithuania March 2011

Leighton Meester shakes things up on the cover of L’Officiel Lithuania March 2011.

It’s not often we celebrities wearing a mix of runway looks, but here we see Leighton wearing a Lanvin Spring 2011 neon pink top with an emerald green Jil Sander Spring 2011 skirt.

Her hair is slicked back hair and pink stilettos peaking out of the bottom.

The rest of Leighton’s editorial sees her wearing MaxMara, YSL, Gucci and Fendi.

What I love most about this editorial is that L’Officiel Lithuania have given Leighton a grown up sophisticated wardrobe.

Usually most editiorials have a ‘Blair-esqe’ Teen Vogue quality about them, or downtown New Yorker vibe, but this shoot is in total contrast to those stereotypical editorials she’s done in the past.

In this editorial I see her as a strong confident woman and I definitely don’t see a hint of Blair Waldorf. For me this is her best ever shoot.

Alexey Yurenev photographed this editorial and Peju Famojure was the stylist.Read More…

Keira Knightley For Elle UK March 2011

British actress Keira Knightley gives us her signature pout as she graces the cover of Elle UK for their March 2011 issue.

Keira wears Tom Ford’s much-coveted debut women’s collection in the editorial.

In her exclusive interview with Elle, Keira talks about the power of fashion and her own personal style.

The full shoot and interview appears in the March issue of Elle, out February 2nd. You can also check out the behind-the-scenes video at Elle UK.

Here are some extracts.

On her Chanel campaign: “There’s something about the story of the woman, the survivor nature of her. And that personality has continued within the whole house. It’s a very small group of people who do this enormous, huge, worldwide thing. I just thought, “Ooh, I’d quite like to look into your world.” You walk into the ateliers and it’s nearly like stepping back in time, even though it’s so modern and so current. The skill and the thought that goes into everything. I find it really interesting.”Read More…

Leighton Meester For Glamour Espana February 2011

‘Gossip Girl’ actress Leighton Meester is featured in an editorial titled ‘American Class’ for the February 2011 edition of Glamour Espana.

Antonio Terrón captured the face of Herbal Essences, Missoni and Vera Wang perfumes looking resplendent wearing Louis Vuitton, Chloé, Just Cavalli and Miu Miu Resort 2011 looks.

In her interview she defines glamour, talks about her love of music and her favorite looks for spring.

Kristen Stewart For Vogue US February 2011

Kristen Stewart graces the cover American Vogue’s February 2011 issue.

I’m sure her die-hard fans will make this the highest selling cover of all time, so Vogue were very smart to make her a cover girl.

The “Twilight” star sports softer lighter locks on the cover wearing a Proenza Schouler Spring 2011 looks throughout her editorial which was shot by Mario Testino.

A lot of people seem to be very unhappy about Kristen’s cover which I think is strange considering the fact – like it or not – she is a major Hollywood player.

What I love about this editorial is that there isn’t any over the top princess-like dresses. The editors picked a young hip brand which suits Kristen’s non fussy style.

In her interview she talked about her preferred roles and the way she’s been putting her money to use.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On the roles she goes for: “I choose things that are so overly ambitious, and if I can’t do stuff like that, I don’t want to be doing this.”Read More…

Elle Fanning For Interview Magazine December/January 2010/2011

I still find it so hard to believe that actress Elle Fanning is only 12 years old.

The youngster appears in the latest edition of Interview magazine looking angelic wearing Valentino, Chanel, Marc Jacobs and 3.1 Phillip Lim.

The black and white images were captured by Steven Pan.

I love her editorial. The pictures are so beautiful and clean and I love how they don’t make Elle look too grown up.

Her beauty and innocence translates well in these pictures.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On already working with so many great people: “It’s amazing that I get to meet all these people. I’ve learned so much from all of them. I just worked with Sofia Coppola and that was amazing. I learned so much from her. I can’t even describe how much fun I had.”

On fashion: “I love fashion! I love clothes! I really like vintage clothes, so in my closet there’s a lot of ’50s stuff. I go to the stores and shop around.”

On her favouite designers: “I wore the Marc Jacobs dress, so I love Marc Jacobs. He has a vintage flair. But I’ve always worn a lot of vintage stuff, so it hasn’t been a lot of
designers. If I see something that I like, I just buy it.”Read More…

Rachel McAdams For Vogue Italia December 2010

Rachel McAdams is almost unrecognisable in her black and white editorial for Vogue Italia’s December 2010 issue.

I love the big hair and her sultry attitude.

The “Morning Glory” actress was shot by Tom Munro only wearing beautiful pieces from the Chanel Resort 2011 collection.

Some of the looks we’ve seen before on Blake Lively, Alexa Chung and Rachel Bilson.

In her interview Rachel talks about not being very popular at school and how she tries not to play the same character in her movies.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On not being popular at school: “I wasn’t popular at all in high school. I know that every actress says that, but I was really awkward.”

On choosing different roles: “I can’t stand routine. I look like an angel, but I can play the bitch. I love playing different characters; I try to avoid repeating myself too much.”Read More…
